Walnut Iowa's Feral Cat Program held a garage sale last Saturday to commorate National Feral Cat Day, which was October 16th.
Community members showed their support not only by purchasing items from the sale, but also by donating money and cat food. The program collected two bags of dry food and seven cans. Everyone who brought cat food or made a $2 donation was entered into a drawing for a kitty litter box full of treasures for their cat. The winner was Petra Heiny of Walnut.
So sorry to be days late getting this article posted. This one, I didnt write. I was told that we needed to reduce the articles to once a month. So this one was a nice surprise and I thank The Walnut Bureau for printing it!

Anyway, all in all it was a great day. The weather could not have been more perfect. We had LOTS of people and they opened their pocketbooks for the kitties. Many of them were very excited to hear about the cause and were eager to learn and to share what they know. While I was totally exhausted at the end of the day, I, Kathy cannot wait til the next one! We even had participation online. Some of our facebook friends that were too far to join us, purchased items online and made donations to our chip in account.
Much gratitude goes to everyone involved in helping to make this happen. All of you who donated items to sell, that helped set up, that spent part of your weekend working, that sent encouraging notes, who made things for us to sell, who came and purchased items here or online...we love you and appreciate all you do to help us.
I signed up on my email to receive google alerts on feral cats. Its amazing EVERY DAY how many articles and how much activity is going on in this area. The word is getting out and people are beginning to notice!
